trouble installing flashplayer from iso

I have burned an iso image onto a disk in order to install flashplayer on my linspire system. i saved the tar.gz to /home/myname/easyiso. what's the next step? I realize I need to learn a LOT of language and procedural material in order to really begin command line operations; this is how I'm getting started. Also, I can't get CNR to initialize. is the login for CNR linked to the native email application in linspire?

I'm not clear on your question. Is the tar file inside an iso image? If yes, you need to be root to mount the iso image.

First, create a mount point. we will use /mnt/iso as an example. Open a terminal window and type these two commands.

mkdir -p /mnt/iso
mount -o loop iso-image.iso /mnt/iso

Replace iso-image.iso with the actual file name.

To extract the tar file type

tar -zxvf /mnt/iso/path-to-tarfile.tar.gz

Replace path-to-tarfile.tar.gz with the actual directories, if any, and the tarfile name.

If the iso image was burn to disc, mount the disc and type df to see the mount point of the disc. If the mount point is /media/dvd in this example, type

tar -zxvf /media/disk/path-to-tarfile.tar.gz

Depending on how you created the tar file, it will extract the folder or a list of files or both. If there is a new folder, change to that folder and look for a script to install the flash plugin. If the script is not executable, then type chmod +x flashplayerscript and then ./flashplayerscript

flashplayerscript is not the actual name, it is an example.

Linspire is now owned by xandros. You may need to contact them concerning CNR.
